This article presents information on development in the high technology industries. This north American company is looking for an inexpensive, simple-to-use, safe and effective water purification system for either home or outdoor use by individuals or families at the point of use. A global consumer goods firm based in Europe is seeking technology to modify the visual/optical properties of both hydrophilic and hydrophobic surfaces. Suitable technology solutions should ideally be deliverable via a surfactant-containing aqueous medium, and should be able to generate optical effects that are able to be seen by the human eye through low levels of an added material that is suitable for consumer goods applications.
